Move womankind forward on International Women's Day

Move womankind forward on International Women's Day

March 8 is International Women's Day and this year stands out the most.

The International Interior Design Association (IIDA)'s 2016 survey reported that 69 percent of design practitioners are women (out of 87,000), but only 25 percent of those women are firm principals.

Across Spain, women held a 24-hour "feminist" strike to protest against the gender pay gap and gender violence.

The event took place to mark International Women's Day. This must change. Women are critical to economic growth and global stability. The dynamic illustrations featured on their site - that depict these women's power so beautifully - were created by designer Candice Massaria.

Speaking at the forum on the Theme, "Press for Progress" Madam Akufo-Addo also acknowledged some individuals who had positively impacted the lives of children in their communities.

"To the woman who made me the woman I am, taught me to believe in and chase my dreams and continues to make me strong every single day", the reality star wrote on a throw-back picture of her handsome mum.

These fierce females - all activists and political pioneers - were and are our Wonder Women.

"So many people think the jobs on the ramp, under the wings of aircraft, are just for men", Joanne Kershaw, a ramp manager for the airline, said in a statement regarding the occasion.

This year's theme for International Women's Day is #PressforProgress. "Women's empowerment is at the heart of the 2030 Agenda for Sustainable Development".

Instead, we - as a society - have put such enormous pressures on young women to look and act in a certain way, achieve ideal grades, land powerful and well-paid jobs, become flawless mothers, and "do it all", that they are buckling under the weight of our expectations. It celebrates the world achievements of women in the fields of economy, politics and society.

She continued, "But now I'm in a different position, so now I have to go again, and I have to meet those girls face to face". The companies are expected to identify challenges facing women in the workplace and share recommendations about how to solve them.

"Your safety represents the safety of all Afghan women", she said, reminding women in uniform to report any abuse by superiors to the rights commission.

My Administration is also supporting women in the United States by empowering them to continue driving the success of our Nation.
